not sure about a model fs1e tho, i've never seen one
That's a wee beastie - much of it hand-built/modified, from what I can see in the picture. I've never had or ridden a Yamaha, so I can't comment.
My bike looked like this, in all its pre-restriction torque glory - although the blue is darker in real life than these photos:
thats a nice little bike, they make good cafe racer bases 🙂
They were even advertised with a rev limit of 12,000.
Now you can't find a good one on the road that isn't a full restoration, and I've seen those for sale at £5k, or - worse still - price on request. The internet is full of photos of them, but they never seem to be of bikes that actually exist now. Mine was written off in a collision, and I assume that most of the others were as well. ,
I know my little 125 Keeway has fuel injection, combined braking with disc brakes all-round, electric starter, etc., all the mod cons. But I do still miss my CB. That Honda replaced it with the anaemic 125 Superdream is an insult (although the 404 and CBR600F made up for it).
prices have gone mad in the last few years, exactly the reason i'm gonna hang on to my nsr

My bad - I changed the name from WIP and didn't create a new link. Try this one:
Just to make life even more difficult for you ?? About 100 of the Vallejo Model Color, 25 Model Air, 45 Game Color and 15 Game Air paints are available on Amazon Prime for £2.45 each delivered. There are also some Game Effects and Game Ink for the same £2.45 but I didn't count those. A few of these have minimum orders e.g. Iraqi Sand, 2 bottles and so on but most can be bought singly.
I did think about adding Amazon and eBay, but there can be a lack of clarity over delivery charges, combined postage, etc. In the end, I decided to concentrate on dedicated/local shops, as that is where I get my own supplies.
I have had the odd glitch with a broken item, or a faulty paint, but every time I have received excellent customer service - which is just as important.
We gotta support dedicated model stores. Now more than ever. Any hobby would suffer greatly from only being able to source stuff from Amazon. I do use Amazon for modelling stuff, but only for small stuff I can't find in a model store on these shores.
Ya I was doing Amazon for a few tools and such but the consumables like paint, primer, thinners, and such, are way cheaper at my LHS. I have three stores in my city and they are all cheaper than Amazon and between the three of them I can usually find what I need. In fact I bought a couple of things online and the pigments were rock hard and the three pack primer I bought on Amazon must have been exposed to the elements because two of the three primer shades are funky and funky now. Never again… now I buy all consumables at my LHS.

If anyone has any empty/discarded sprues cluttering up their workspace, I would be happy to take them off your hands. Any size, colour and shape welcome.
If you're near Liverpool/Birkenhead I can collect, or pay any postage via PayPal.
